Pronunciation / Stressing the last syllable and phone numbers

The last syllable of a word or of a rhythmic group (a group of words pronounced in a single breath) is different: it has what is called a noticeable stress. Be sure to stress the length of the syllables in words of the following categories: - "International" words
taxi
guitare
téléphone - "International" first names
Anne
David
Lucie - When you raise your voice to call out to someone who doesn't hear, or to shout, the end syllable is longer and more forceful. Example:
"Qu’est-ce que tu dis ?" - Numbers The end syllable of a number always lasts longer. Example:
07 (zéro sept) – 52 (cinquante-deux) – 18 (dix-huit) - 13 (treize). 07-52-18-13
